Join a nourishing, creative and supportive circle of women to experience the richness of memoir and the joy and depth of writing our lives. You will be sensitively and skillfully guided into personal practice, deep listening, sharing (always with choice) and witnessing as we delve into the craft of telling our own stories. No previous experience is necessary. Simply bring yourself, your journal and the desire to write.
